Designed by schools for schools, the refreshed Artsmark will help you to embed arts and culture in your whole school improvement plan.
We understand that current circumstances surrounding COVID-19 mean that our Artsmark settings are facing huge uncertainty and challenges. We want to assure all Artsmark settings that they have our full support during this time, and that support sessions are available remotely.

Awarded by Arts Council England, Artsmark helps schools to deliver a high-quality arts and cultural education and provides an excellent way to demonstrate this, no matter what your starting point.
We believe that every child should have an opportunity to create, experience and participate in extraordinary work. At the heart of Artsmark, seven quality principles give structure and substance to a curriculum which can unlock the potential of children and young people and help them to develop their skills and talents.
The process will enrich, develop and strengthen your school’s arts and culture provision. Artsmark also celebrates your school’s strengths and helps you to share them with the wider world.
Artsmark schools gain access to exceptional resources, expertise, offers and networks of cultural organisations.
IVE offers a range of free support for schools on their Artsmark journey, from face to face workshops to phone support and resources. Contact us for more information or visit our events page.
For all enquiries, requests and support please email firstname.lastname@example.org
